Dhirios Prohibited In State

The State Government once again pursuant to the High Court Judgment in writ petition no. 347/1996 has directed that all types of animals fights including Bull fights/Dhirios are prohibited in the State of Goa and if any person violating the above order passed by the High Court shall be liable for criminal action as per law.

The High Court of Bombay at Goa while disposing off the writ petition no. 347/1996 had observed that the Bull fights or Dhirios are in contravention of the provisions of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1968, and therefore, illegal and cannot be permitted to be organized and are prohibited in the State.
